DID ANYONE THINK EVEN FOR A MINUTE THAT I WAS NOT GOING TO TRY AGAIN? NOT A CHANCE. I am currently training at levels that makes last years increase look mild. Before each day’s training. I always do stretching, crunches (100), pushups (currently at 10 with a goal of 30), and other strength exercises designed to reduce the pain/numbness in my right arm caused by spinal stenosis. This takes about 20 minutes.
Typical training after the exercises described above is now:
Tue – Hike ramps with backpack (currently 23 lbs - will increase in increments up to 34 lbs) at parking garage minimum of 1+45 (45 floors). I go back to the YMCA at night for 30 minutes on the treadmill wearing my backpack.
Wed – Lift weights at YMCA on 14 different devices. I have increased all leg lifts from 130 to 160 and soon to be 170+. I used to do two sets with 12 reps and now I do 3 sets for all leg exercises and arm presses. THEN I exercise for an hour on the elliptical and the treadmill or bicycle.
Thu – Same as Tue
Fri – Day of rest
Sat – Hike the ramps at Orlando Hospital with backpack minimum 2 hours. These ramps are a continuous UP for 9 floors with no flat area in between floors. Minimum floors hiked = 80.
Sun – Same as Wed.
Mon – Day of rest
I HOPE THIS WILL BE ENOUGH TO GET UP DEM DAMN HILLS!
